Fostering Student Engagement in the Mathematical Practices
Using instructional routines that develop productive habits for success
Research suggests promoting deeper, more sustained learning by having students participate in a routine of problem solving followed by instruction. By actively engaging students in problem solving and discussion, the Try–Discuss–Connect routine can help them understand and remember mathematics concepts.
This whitepaper examines:
How problem-based instructional routines that promote engagement can help increase student understanding and retention of mathematics concepts
Try–Discuss–Connect: a practical, easy-to-implement, research-based instructional routine
The role of the teacher and student within each phase of the Try–Discuss–Connect instructional routine
